1 ½ to 2 cups plain full-fat yogurt
1 cup water
6 ice cubes
1 tsp salt
Place all ingredients in a strong blender and blend until smooth. If lassi is too thick, add a little more water. For a sweet lassi, substitute 2 tsp sugar or honey for the salt. To make a mango lassi, add 1 cup of chopped fresh or frozen mango and 1 tsp of ground cardamom.
